(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two political heavyweights are reportedly pressuring Congressman Justin Amash not to run for the Senate next year.
There's a lot of speculation that Amash will run for Senator Carl Levin's seat when he retires next year.
But an article in the National Journal is reporting Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and his father, former presidential candidate Ron Paul are urging Amash to stay out of the race.
The Pauls reportedly view Amash as a strong libertarian voice in the House and wouldn't want to see him potentially lose the Senate race.
The article also says an unnamed member of Amash's staff says the Pauls have not tried to convince him not to run.
